Good Ones

Posted on January 07, 2016

       It is a common question to ask in the livestock world–“What does so-and-so judge like?”   The best answer to hear–“Without a doubt, you need a good one.” Personally, as a judge, buyer, shower, teacher, etc., I feel that I have been very consistent over the past decades in liking good ones.  Although types and kinds have changed, animals always need to be balanced, sound structured, plenty of muscle and have that

Who’s the dumb one?

Posted on January 06, 2016

        There are a lot of times that I just shake my head, mutter a foul word or two under my breath and wonder who exactly is the dumbest?  Is it me?  Can’t be. Your president just announced his new world-changing gun control legislation.  What?  This is what those morons have been working on?  There is nothing about any gun control legislation that will stop any of the needless shootings that have

Operation: Drowned Rat

Posted on January 03, 2016

     It is not an unknown fact that I have been battling mice and rats this past year.  I’ve had my share of victories but have also taken numerous defeats.  For whatever reason, we have seen more pack-rat problems this year.  They are immune to the bait blocks.  They set the rat traps off, then eat the peanut butter.  I came face to face with one a couple of weeks ago.  If we would

The End

Posted on December 31, 2015

     The end of 2015 is here.  Dec. 31, 2015.  It’s been a good year, but I look forward to next year.   2015 was good for Rumour Has It and his sons.  Rumour sired the grand wether as well as the grand and reserve grand doe at Woodward.  The bronze wether at OYE was a Rumour.  The grand wether at Ark/Ok State Fair was a Rumour.  There was a division winning doe at

It’s only just begun!

Posted on December 28, 2015

     The first day of winter for 2015 was actually December 21.  Only 6 days ago.  In other words, winter has only just begun.  And it came in with a vengeance.  It moved in Saturday right after lunch.  We actually got lucky here, as we were east of the rain and sleet.  That frozen stuff is what really causes problems.  But, the wind did hit here and then it got windier and it hasn’t

Merry Christmas!!

Posted on December 24, 2015

    Christmas Eve is here.  I hope that everyone was able to air their grievances on Festivus.  Merry Christmas to all.  SCROOGED is on right now.  The marathon will begin in a short time.  Yes, that marathon–The Christmas Story movie 24 hour marathon.  I hope everyone has an excellent Christmas and vacation.  Remember that bumble’s bounce.  And here’s to hoping that your RV crapper isn’t full and that you don’t shoot your eye out.

CHRISTmas Delivery

Posted on December 22, 2015

       It will be late this night, actually earling Tuesday morning, when Tammy and Kela will get back here to paradise.  I guess it is a parental feeling.   The feeling that Tammy is bringing home a special delivery.  A feeling like she went to cali to pick up our favorite daughter and is bringing her home for the holidays.  But, in all actuality, the package, Kela, has WAY more travel miles logged

The Review

Posted on December 19, 2015

     Yes, Duke and I made it to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  We watched the 3D version.  It was a packed house with 4 showings in Woodward on Friday night.   No spoilage here.   Was it good?  Yes.  The special effects and graphics were unparalleled.  Best I’ve ever seen.  The visuals of the orignal Star Wars back in 1977  were too the moon.  This flick takes it to a whole new
